I'm pretty careful with money, as mortgage pay off and early retirement are completely within my reach and I want to keep it that way.
Every little bit helps, I'm surprised sometimes how much people spend on stuff that is not necessary without realizing it.
Also, as I get older I value experiences over material possessions much more-so if I have a choice between a night out at a fine restaurant or a day of white water rafting with family and friends versus the new F13 Blu-Ray box set, guess which I'm choosing?
To each his own pursuits and interests though.

hmm from the review, it suggests that the other could be the one thats artificially boosted and maybe more messed with but yeah shout's is too dark, I prefer the other one too. I guess it depends how they both look in motion.

To each his own pursuits and interests though.
The past year I've been feeling a conflict with just about every movie buying binge I've engaged in. I feel like I'm about to reach a breaking point with my accumulation of stuff. Where I used to feel a rush when I get a big box of DVDs in the mail, now I almost feel a little sick. Kinda like I'm a sucker for allowing my self to be sucked into this rampant consumerism. I attribute this change to having children. My dad didn't waste time and money on frivolous things. So I even though I'm in my late 30's maybe its time to grow up and be more responsible. That and I need to spend more of my free time looking into things that can make our lives more fulfilling. It will be interesting to see how long it takes before I move onto different interests. This movie buff hobby didn't start until 2007. Which was when my wife got pregnant with my first son and I started feeling trapped in my house.

At forty, I've already begun thinking about my death quite regularly and as such want nothing more than my family taken care of when I'm gone. Framed in these terms, huge purchases seem trivial.
I still buy stuff once in awhile, but stuff I know my family will enjoy too. Part of getting old is sacrificing for those you love.
There is nothing more precious than quality time with the ones you love, that is irreplaceable.

I have similar thoughts some times, although I never had kids. The rush doesnt seem to last as long as it used to. I am certainly getting more selective

I spend much time on wilderness type adventures, it's relatively cheap, good exercise and a good way to re-connect with yourself and your significant other in a serene environment.

I hope I never feel like that. Having kids must suck!

No, we all hate each other underneath. Civility like beauty is only skin deep and I've always thought about my death. Hell I almost died from alcohol a year ago yesterday. YOU SHOULD NEVER GIVE UP YOUR LOVE OF HORROR MOVIES! IT'S AN INTEREST OF YOURS/OURS!

Never gave up anything, with a room full of dvds I just see no reason to add more. Also, realistically there are only so many good movies out there-most of the stuff I've bought recently like Night Claws, Boggy Creek and Chillerama is more or less crap and not worth keeping.
There's a chinese proverb that states you can only possess so much, until it starts to possess you. Watching horror films is cool, yes, but there's also a world of experiences out there beyond.
Getting older, to me, does not mean getting lamer-look for me on the rapids, mountain climbing or para-sailing. Sitting on the couch is what I do to unwind, not a lifestyle.

I was never really the tattooed, pierced up, sky-diving, mountain climbing, doing other unnecessary bullshit that'll get you killed oh so much faster type of a guy. I'm just about as physically active as an old jew. But I'm not fat thank goodness! :-) I will say that there's nothing wrong with learning something new. For instance I have ventured into the world of electrical work. I'm currently in the process of changing out all my old light switches/outlets in my house for new white ones. The old ones has a yellow-teeth color to them. YUCK!

Scream Factory edition looks much better, The UK release is a piece of shit!!!

It's clearly an upscale with crushed blacks, No fine detail at all, Contrast boosted to within an inch of it's life.......Just horrible.

And yes before anyone asks....I own it....Span it once and tossed it to the burn pile

This is the Cundey approved transfer, Lets hope he sorts Halloween out properly too (I hear he's doing that now )
